Thanks guys. We had a blast driving out there. Montauk is such a relief from the rest of the overcrowded island.

Yeah, I think I am going to do 2.5 all the way through. I shrink it if it sounds bad.

Mark, DO NOT GO WITH 2.5" You will kill your torque, and will lose power, TRUST ME!!! Stay with the stock exhaust size, 2.25", it is the best for the G6 :rofl:

I want to hear a vid. When I ran straight glasspack, it was raspy in the upper revs.

It sounds much better in person, if you want proof, just ask 1BADG6GT (The wife made this video, so sorry about not having the proper sound :D and the camera picks up the air on let off, but doesn't sound that bad in person)

I tell anyone with GM 60*V6's, unless they have have boost, 2.25" is ideal for an N/A setup. Boost? Bump it up to 2.50" or 2.75".

I listened, the muffler vibrates in an odd fashion, when you let off the throttle, the back pressure rushes back and the muffler baffles it funny. You need a chambered muffler.

OK, I'll keep it stock. I guess it'll be cheaper that way.

How does .25" bigger make me lose torque?

You lose torque because of too much back pressure.

And how does a bigger pipe create more back pressure?

Is there some thing that I can read about how exhaust works? lol

Having only an intake, the motor won't be making enough power to push out a larger diameter of exhaust. But introduce headers, head work, ported UIM & LIM, cam and a tune, THEN, you'll benefit from a 2.50" diameter exhaust.

ok, so what if I am going to have a tune to add to it, still stick with the 2.25?

Just intake and a tune, yeah, 2.25" is your best bet.

Haha, thanks all.

@Ghost: I've been pondering a matte paint job for quite some time. But that won't happen unless it's retired from DD status.

@Bam: technically, it isn't legal, but I've never been bugged, so knock on wood.
